Sam's club sells a 5# container of animal crackers for $5.98. Every time I walk out there with that jug all the deer come running to me. I think the key to giving a treat is about getting your deer close enough where you can get a good look at them. Animal crackers are a well liked cheap treat that brings them running to you.

My deer love peanuts, apples and grapes. You stand at the front of the pen and hold up the bag of grapes in the air and shake it and they all come running.

All great options! At the moment we're feeding carrots, peanuts, grapes, record rack golden deer nuggets and peanuts. Animal crackers every now and then. I feel like they look forward to treats a lot more than supper lol

All mentioned are good and I've done all, but did almost kill a buck with acidosis from too much corn. I get animal crackers from Sam's club, they sell a 5# box for $6.

i just lost a 10 pt that scored 196" by over feeding him corn.but some say the animal crackers and apples had to much sugar then the corn made a difference (asidosis) or corn toxicity i believe
